Jordan has been the backdrop for countless productions. This small, dynamic country can serve as virtually any Middle Eastern/North African setting and is an excellent choice for historical/Biblical locations, and even other worlds and planets.
Our team will give your script or treatment a thorough location breakdown and assemble a customized presentation to fit your project.
CREW & EQUIPMENT
Jordan’s crew base is one of its greatest assets in production. Films like Brian De Palma’s “Redacted,” Kathryn Bigelow’s “The Hurt Locker,” and Michael Bay’s “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” were high-profile projects that led to Jordanian crews becoming the best in the region. By the time Ridley Scott shot “The Martian” in 2015, Jordanian locals led six different departments on that shoot.
Desert Motion Pictures will assist you in hiring highly trained and talented crew professionals who have contributed to an impressive array of productions.
Desert Motion Pictures calls upon its long-standing relationships with various vendors to fulfill both simple and complex requests. Allow us to serve as your trusted broker for any of your production needs across departments - cameras, grip equipment, lighting, expendables, vehicles, monitors, etc. - we can help get what you need.
